Being the foundation of the IT revolution, the students of this branch are prepared with a sound knowledge of basic sciences, provided with a deep understanding of digital systems design, digital and analog communication, computer software and circuit simulation tools.
Starting with basics of Mathematics, Physics and chemistry, the students are trained in programming Techniques, Data Structure, Operating systems and computer graphics. After the end of second year, they have six-week in-house practical training in which they get hands-on experience in simulation and designs software tools- PSPICE, ORCAD and Electronic Work Bench. Special training of circuit simulation software like MATLAB and VLSI software is given in the third year.
At the end of fifth semester, students take advanced courses like Digital Signal Processing, VLSI Design, Data Communication Networks, Advanced Microprocessors and Microwave Engineering and more than adequate practical knowledge of software, hardware and interfacing techniques. At the end of sixth semester, the students take a six-day industrial training. This gives them a chance to experience the real world working environment. In the seventh semester, specialized electives include Fiber Optical Communication and Advanced VLSI, Fuzzy systems.
In the final semester, with prior sound knowledge of hardware, software and industrial exposure, the students carry out their final year working projects. Along with that they study advanced subjects like Satellite and mobile communication, artificial neural networks, Photonic Systems, Embedded Systems, and Pattern Recognition etc.
